Mixed media Asian abstract, "Kimono", by Colorado Mixed Media Painter Carol Nelson

"Kimono", 6x6 mixed media abstract by Carol Nelson

This is a painting I did as a demo in my recent workshop in Raleigh, NC.  As with many of my demos, I did not have time to complete it in class, so I finished it at home.

This painting has some printed paper, Asian newspaper, origami foil, and some fluid acrylic squiggles that were done on a sheet of plastic.  After the squiggles dry overnight, they can be handled and placed where needed in a painting.

My apologies to anyone who can read Korean script.  I have no idea what this little newspaper snippet says - it could be an ad for something embarrassing - or, maybe not.  I just like the look of the characters.

Beautiful piece, love how you chose to display it set out in a frame with traces of the painting strokes down the edges.
